Why go to space?  it seems there's nothing out there



Except for all of the energy and “metals”(Included is stuff like Graphene)  we will ever need.

And with robots we can mine the stars while our society stays squarely planted on earth Smiley

I don't even take it for granted that other people know which planet we live on.

I always find it interesting how unpopular the Apollo program was in opinion polling in previous decades. For example, in 1961, investing in the moon program was underwater 33-58 nationally. The program was still underwater 34-54 in 1967. In 1979, a decade after the landing, only 41% nationally said landing a man on the moon was worth the cost.

No, destiny is far too much like a random walk (I got that bon mot from elsewhere), to posit any such thing. I also question its wisdom, but wisdom and destiny are not the same thing I admit. I also question the "science" of it being practicable until going faster than the speed of light becomes as prosaic as breaking the sound barrier. And then the issue of does it "pencil." LOL.
